I'll have updates throughout the day, and more resources and links that show how respectful and responsible Minnesotans in Northern Minnesotans want to live with our wolf population intact. We can't have healthy, diverse forests without wolves, and we won't have half the magic we have sharing this landscape with these spiritually and culturally potent symbols of who we are as a State if we reduce them to pelts and trophies. We don't want to be Idaho, or Walker's Wisconsin, and obviously people in those places don't want to live like we do.
